im a college freshmen. for the past few years netflix and other apps on my phone has been a constant in my life. i know most people in my generation are always on their phones, or at least thats the stereotypes, but for me most of the time im at home, my phone is in my hand and my eyes are guled to netflix. its sad that a part of me is proud at the same time the other part is ashamed that i managed to finish almost five seasons of one show in 12 days. than I tell my friends they say "nice" or "great job" i know its a problem but i cant stop. and of course i mostly dont want to, because when i feel stressed, i watch netflix, when i feel sad or upset, i watch netflix and when i feel happy, i watch netflix. It has become a cycel of the weekdays: do very little school work, watch a few eps. feel very upset that i havent doe any school work, watch more netflix. there really isn't any question here, I just wanted to share how im feel to some people that might see it differantly than my friends. (sorry for the spelling)
Is anyone even here, lol? Does anyone ever reply to posts? Are we all addicts, or is anyone here who actually overcame a years long addiction?If not, then - does anyone want to be my accountability buddy? We could exchange e-mails, talk a bit about our personal problems with internet addiction and try to make a daily reminder/accauntability thing to try and help each other out. Anyone...
